Food Friday: French Dip Sandwiches

Here is a fix it and forget it  Food Friday recipe that you might need during the hustle and bustle of the week.  This crock pot recipe for French Dip sandwiches can cook overnight or all day long depending on your schedule.

This French Dip recipe makes its own au jus as it cooks up ever so tender in the crock pot. Come home to a warm supper after a day on the slopes or a shopping spree at the mall. 

Slow Cooker French Dip

3 – 4 lb Beef Roast
½ C Soy sauce
1 Beef bullion cube
3 – 4 Peppercorns
1 Bay leaf
1 tsp Rosemary
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Garlic powder

Remove all visible fat from roast.  Place all ingredients in slow cooker and add water to almost cover the roast. Cook on low heat for 10 – 12 hours.   Meat will be tender.  If necessary, pull it apart before serving.  Drain off juice for dipping.  It is a good idea to have some extra au jus on hand for those diners who love to dip!

Serve on deli rolls with Provolone or Mozzarella cheese.  Add a salad and it's a complete meal!
